As we’re well and truly in the season of showing off more skin, the quest for achieving a safe, natural looking tan becomes high priority on our to-do lists. Choosing the right tan for your skin tone can seem daunting, especially when you’re on the fairer side. Tanning mishaps such as streaks show up more easily, and self-tanners have a tendency to appear more orange-toned on pale skin.


The ModelCo tanning wardrobe caters to all skin tones, with a one-colour-suits-all blue green base, allowing you to achieve a tan that’s truly tailored to your natural undertones.

From lotions, to mousses, to tanning waters, here is a guide to finding the right tanning formula if you have fair skin:


Get a streak-free finish

The key to achieving a streak-free and flawless tan is to exfoliate. TAN REMOVER EXFOLIATING SOAP is enriched with both pore cleansing granules of Natural Pumice Stone and skin-smoothing alpha-hydroxy acids of Goats Milk to buff away dead skin cells creating smooth, tan-ready skin.

Achieve a soft-luminous tan

Colourless, odourless and weightless, TAN WATER is a complete game-changer for those who are looking for an easy, sun-kissed glow while reviving the skin. Developing over just 4 hours to bestow a gorgeous glow, TAN WATER is free from those tell-tale streaks and smell.


Take control of your glow

What may seem like deep dark tan, can be completely tailored to you and your desired result. With an advanced colour-guide technology which deepens over the hour, just 1 hour of TAN MOUSSE achieves a gorgeous sun-kissed glow.


Build on your tan, for a sun-kissed result

Formulated with all-natural ingredients, NATURAL TAN is a nourishing tanning lotion which is perfect for those with sensitive skin. The low level of DHA allows you to achieve a natural looking tan after 1 application, or build on your tan daily to unveil a deeper glow.
